‘The Trump Effect’ is contaminating our kids — and could resonate for years

Think we’re in for a disastrous four years if Donald Trump is elected president?

You’re being optimistic. Given what some of our children are learning from him, it may take an entire generation to recover from the hateful rhetoric he has aimed at immigrants, Muslims and Blacks Lives Matter protesters.

Trump’s vitriol is making it off the campaign trail and into the lingua franca of children at an alarming rate. Just watch coverage from Trump rallies to hear the next phrases kids will be slinging at school.

“Build the wall!” That was the chant at a high school basketball game in Indiana last week, directed by kids from a majority-white school who held up Trump signs and yelled at the opposing players and fans, who were from a predominantly Latino school.

Tom the Dancing Bug nails Trump

Voted this morning in No Va at 8. Was vote 126 on the Democratic side. Only 58 votes on the GOP.

No one had any tables set up (except the libertarians with some petition to get on the ballot.)

Ms FSogol said, "Libertarians, you mean like Rand Paul?"
Petition guy, enthusiastically, "Yeah!"
Ms FSogol, "Good Gawd, No way."


Although about double the votes as a normal non-presidential local election, plently of parking, no line, no traffic. Low turnout imo, huge HRC win.

Added: Strange primary. No signs were posted and I've seen no signs around neighborhoods. In the last few weeks, I've seen about a dozen Bernie stickers, a few HRC, two Trump, and a Cruz. The GOP seems to hate all their candidates.
